Colorado READ Act Assessment Regulations and Requirements
Englewood Schools has identified the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) reading assessment as both the interim and diagnostic assessments to satisfy CDE and the requirements of the READ Act.

DIBELS benchmark assessments will be given to all K-3 students and all grades 4-6 students within the following windows:

  • Benchmark 1:  08/18/16-09/1/16
  • Benchmark 2:  12/05/16-12/20/16
  • Benchmark 3:  04/24/17-05/12/17

DIBELS Deep will be used to help diagnose students' reading challenges and to monitor the effectiveness of the identified intervention(s) documented on the READ Plan.
